Our daughter decided after watching Disney’s ‘Brave’ that she wanted to ‘try that’. So for Christmas we bought her a little $25 bow set with 3 arrows. After her dad showed her how to hold, load and release, she was hitting bullseyes within a few hours. Two months later (and three bows) we took her to a local range where we were told that she was actually really good and we needed to get her a ‘real’ bow. We did, and for the next 4 years she shot and shot and shot. We knew she needed a coach to take her to the next level and that the coach would have to be able to work with her personality so we started asking and looking. Coach James Loesch’s name came up several times so we decided to see if it would be a match. Within the first 15 minutes, I knew that we had found our Coach! He has been working with her for 12 months now and has taken her from a good barebow shooter to an Olympic Recurve archer with goals of being an Olympian. Her progress has been impressive and I can not state enough my appreciation for Coach James’ mentality of not wasting our money on equipment that she just doesn’t need or isn’t ready for. He is patient, encouraging, and understanding because he’s been ‘in her shoes’. Oh, and he puts up with me as well.

Houston Archery Lessons & Range is a fantastic, family-owned and run facility that is perfect for all ages. My daughter has been taking lessons and enjoying archery with James for almost 4 years and looks forward to her lesson each time. James is friendly, down to earth and an expert at what he does. I recommend anyone interested in learning the sport of Archery to start here!

Houston Archery is a great place to take your child to learn all about the sport of archery. My daughter was interested in archery for a very long time and I am so glad that we found this establishment. All of the instructors are very knowledgeable and passionate about archery. I have seen all of the instructors exhibit patience and enthusiasm. My daughter looks forward to going to each lesson because the family-like atmosphere is welcoming and encouraging. The owner and staff are very flexible and willing to help their students in any way possible. Since we were new to archery last year, the owner and staff have been very helpful in educating us on equipment and the competition process. My daughter, Alana, has a great relationship with her instructor. All of the instructors show interest for their students’ success.
